It is easy to prepare and always a hit.
Just don't tell them the ingredients till they tell you how much they love it.
Arichokes are unusual and people think they will not like them.
Add parmesan cheese and mayo.
Mix till blended.
Add any optional ingredients and blend.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes till golden brown.
Serve with Crackers of choice.
I prefer Sociables or Wheat Thins.
